Taarabt: In England I couldn't show my talent

Adel Taarabt

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt has spoken of his desire to turn a loan move to AC Milan into a permanent switch.

Adel Taarabt looks increasingly unlikely to return to Queens Park Rangers after a successful spell at AC Milan and there is little doubt as to the player's intentions.

The news that the Moroccan midfielder had joined Milan in January ending a loan spell at Fulham surprised some experts, but he has been excellent in Serie A.

Regarded as one of the high points of a tough season, Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has already made moves to keep Taarabt and is trying to reduce QPR's asking price.

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport has reported that QPR have already knocked down the price tag from £6m to £5m but Milan are keen to pay closer to £3m.

Taarabt would clearly welcome the move as he feels that he is finally being utilised properly at Milan after struggling to show the extent of his talent in England.

"We are in talks to allow me to stay here," he told the Milan Channel.

"I would like to stay because I can give 100 percent with this shirt on. In England I only really played behind the strikers but at Milan I have been given other positions and I like my role.

"I have played for the first time at San Siro and in the Champions League in this shirt and I am learning from my errors."

Taarabt's comments will make his return to England still more unlikely and will raise questions about how he was used by QPR and Tottenham.
